Chris Wood secures the decisive goal in extra time as Nottingham Forest triumphs 3-2 against Blackpool, advancing to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Nottingham Forest faced a significant challenge in their FA Cup third-round replay against League One’s Blackpool. Despite initially establishing a comfortable 2-0 lead, they encountered a tense moment when the spirited home side managed to equalize in the second half. However, Forest ultimately secured a narrow 3-2 victory in extra time.

The match unfolded on a bitterly cold night at Bloomfield Road, a venue where Forest had suffered a 4-1 defeat in the third round just a year ago. Republic of Ireland defender Andrew Omobamidele marked his Forest debut with a well-taken volley in the 16th minute, providing an early lead. The Premier League side seemed to secure their progress when Danilo capitalized on defensive lapses to score the second goal in the 46th minute.
